We visited the restaurant at 7 p.m. at night on a Thursday evening when it was busy. Staff at the host stand and our wait staff was friendly and accommodating. I was impressed with the configuration of the restaurant, as it allows for space and privacy between tables. There is dining available outside of the restaurant, and delivery is available.

Food is fresh and prices are reasonable. There are a variety of options from pizza, pasta, salad, and soups. The dessert selection is tempting. The full bar enables guests to enjoy a variety of beers and cocktails.

Restaurant is very short walking distance to the Westin Pasadena and includes paid underground parking. There is a nice outdoor seating area with umbrella shading. The Small Plates menue options. We enjoyed the food and would return again.

CPK is always consistent. The food is good wholesome and quick. I always get the BBQ chicken salad, and am never disappointed. Great for a quick bite. Not a place for serious dining.

The gluten-free options here were much more than I expected having only been to a CPK years ago. The sangria was excellent and their pepperoni and sausage pizza (gf crust) was a nice treat. Would be nice to have a gf/dairy-free dessert option. Also the patio in the evening was relaxing and full of plant life.

Not in the mood for pizza or pasta, I made the mistake of ordering fish tacos. They were pinkie-sized, smaller than a child's portion, and the remainder was all cabbage. It was almost laughable if it hadn't been so pathetic. I refused it and shared my spouses meal instead. When I talked with the manager she indicated that their meals are "portioned". We did get a comp piece of cake for dessert, but hesitate going back to CPK if this is what they are offering as a meal.

This was my first visit to a California Pizza Kitchen and will definitely go back. Service was excellent. Pizza was good and there were lots of non-pizza choices including great salads and pasta.
